My Dreamhost experience: 11 outages in 5 months.  And those are only
the ones that I filed tickets on because they lasted longer than my
patience threshold. (about half an hour)  I documented all of the
outages at if you're
interested in the details.

Also, I had Drupal completely fall over under Dreamhost.  One day
visitors to the site started receiving HTTP 500 errors.  I had to prod
Dreamhost only to find that we had "exceeded our memory limit".  So,
what was our memory limit?  I have no idea, and neither did Dreamhost
apparently.  Their website is mute on the subject.

So that's my Dreamhost experience.  Totally not bitter here. ;-)
